It is the year 2013 isn’t it? I am encountering articles today that make me believe otherwise.
Racism: Georgia high school students organize first integrated prom. Thank goodness for the high school students for having the maturity what the adults should have done decades ago.
Homophobia: Student senate passes ‘Religious Funding Exemption Bill’ (which I think should be known as the “We are some hellacious hypocritical Christians” bill, but then, what do I know?)
Sexism: Groundbreaking Female Rocket Scientist Sure Could Cook. Man, I was worried about that! What if one day I woke up able to simultaneously solve 5 differential equations in my head, but I couldn’t cook for my significant other. What a tragedy that would be.
But yes, all of that still happens today. After my experience in the interview last week, I am saddened but unsurprised.
Dear dear dear Students,
Please see to it that your generation does a better job than mine. I’m sorry we screwed so many things up for you.
